Decision Maker: Environment and Climate Change Committee
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
The Committee noted the short, medium and long term capacities at the 10 burial grounds in Broxtowe and the capacity for new burials. Chilwell Muslim Section had not had any burials for five years which had been due to initial ground water problems. Nottingham City had traditionally been the location of choice for burials. It was hoped this situation would change.
1. Cease using Beeston Cemetery for new burials once all of the remaining grave spaces have been allocated and utilise Chilwell Cemetery as the alternative.
2. Enter into initial negotiations with the owners of the land to the east of Stapleford Cemetery with regards to a price for the land and a potential timescale to undertake a possible extension of the burial ground.
